The Holiday season is a time to put aside your everyday distractions and spend time with your loved ones. To help you focus your time and energy on your family and friends or activities that will help you reconnect to yourself, we’ll be sharing 12 ways to do so in our 12 Days of Disconnection.
While the 12 days of Christmas doesn’t technically start until, well, Christmas, these tips can help you live mindfully throughout the year. In that spirit, we’re starting a little early with our very first tip.

Today’s tip is to try a new recipe. While you’re cooking and eating meals with your loved ones, this is a great time to turn off your devices, catch up, and enjoy the great food you’ve prepared.
Jasmine of Sweet Simple Vegan shared a quick but delicious recipe with us that she made during her Getaway. You can make it at home – or even better, over the campfire outside of your tiny cabin (just be sure to bring a cast iron skillet with you). Pro tip: print this recipe ahead of time to go totally screen-free while you’re putting your meal together.
Vegan Campfire Hash Recipe
Prep Time: 8 minutes
Cook Time: 25 minutes
2 tablespoons avocado oil
1/2 large onion, finely diced
2 garlic cloves, finely minced
3 medium yukon gold potatoes, cut into small cubes
1/2 red bell pepper, thinly sliced
1 can (15.5 ounces) black beans, drained and rinsed
2 heaping cups chopped kale, stems removed
1 teaspoon Old Bay seasoning
Salt and pepper, to taste
1/4 cup finely chopped cilantro or parsley, for garnish
1 large avocado, sliced
- In a large cast-iron skillet, add in 2 tablespoons of oil along with the onions, garlic, bell peppers. Cook for 3 to 5 minutes, or until softened.
- Mix in the potatoes and the old bay, and carefully cover the pan with a lid or aluminum foil. Cook, stirring every few minutes, until the potatoes soften, about 15 minutes. Remove the lid and allow the potatoes to cook for 2 minutes more, or until browned.
- Stir in the kale and black beans. Allow both to heat through and the kale to turn bright green, about 3 minutes.
- Remove the pan from heat and season with salt and pepper as desired.
- Serve warm with a garnish of cilantro and avocado plus a side of toast. Enjoy.
